Aha Moments in 2007

Tony Karrer

I wanted to go back and figure out what things really struck me during 2007. Authoring in eLearning 2.0 / Add-ins & Mash-ups Wow, what a great list from 2006, I'm glad I have that saved somewhere. ;) So how about in here's a random list of things from 2007: My 10 year old son edited Wikipedia - A Fourth Grader Wikipedia Update and added value.

Cammy Beans Learning Visions: Half of Companies Blocking Facebook

Learning Visions

Wednesday, August 22, 2007 Half of Companies Blocking Facebook Christy Tucker has been musing on Social Networking as LMS: Problems and Opportunities. One real problem is corporate fear of social networking tools. Im no Facebook super-user and I havent experienced a huge time suck from it, but I suppose its possible. But what information is it that is actually being "leaked" through Facebook by these irresponsible employees ?

Using Facebook as a learning platform

eFront

Let’s start this post by stating that Facebook was not actually created as a learning platform, it can however clearly be used to enhance and support elearning. Facebook is STILL the most convenient way to get connected to friends, get updated on existing friends, find new people, build relationships and express identities – so the big Facebook advantage is that your audience is most definitely there. We have written about Facebook apps for elearning before in this post!

FaceBook research - your help needed

Learning with e's

Anyone who is using FaceBook , for whatever purposes, and especially those who are being wrapped up ever tighter in its nefarious and slippery coils - this is a call out to you for help. 2 Why did you first subscribe to FaceBook? 3 What are the main reasons for using FaceBook now? 5 How regularly do you use FaceBook? 7 How do you use FaceBook in educational practice? 8 What benefits do you think FaceBook can bring to students?

I finally succumbed to Facebook

Clive on Learning

I hadn't intended to sign up with Facebook. I had no idea what to expect from Facebook and, a couple of weeks later, my expectations remain very fuzzy. In this sense I would like Facebook to demonstrate more value than other online communities that I have participated in. The problem isn't Facebook so much as all those apps that prompt users to 'send this to ten of your friends'." If I change my mind after a few more months of Facebook, I'll let you know

Are Facebook friends real friends?

Clive on Learning

Facebook users in the UK, a 300% increase on the year. The average Facebook user has 150 friends (suddenly I feel unloved). If anything, social networking can be seen as a symptom of the problem: we attempt to surround ourselves with friends online to compensate for the lack of 'quality time' that we can spend with our friends face-to-face. Looked at in this light, Facebook is alleviating what could be a much worse problem.

See you in San Jose

Clive on Learning

I'm personally facilitating two sessions: An early morning Breakfast Bytes discussion about Facebook on Wednesday at 7am (I know this is really early, but no problem because the West Coast is 8 hours behind the UK and it'll be 3 in the afternoon for me). Next week I'm visiting the eLearning Guild's DevLearn conference in San Jose.

The Value of the Network is in Defined, Small Groups

Vignettes Learning

Dan Karp wrote an observation on the value of the networks in relation to Facebook's growth, which resounds to me since I have always suspected that "networks have to stay small to be productive." The propensity to implement software solutions by means of tidal waves or en mass may be one of the problems we will be facing.

Beware the Technology Police

Breakthrough eLearning

They said they would like to have their eLearning follow a similar path, but that there was one little problem. In the last few weeks I have come across stories about school boards banning cell phones from school property and government departments banning use of Facebook, the social networking site, by government employees. I do not condone cheating, but perhaps the bigger problem here is that schools are still giving memorization tests in an age of instant access to information.

The survival of higher education (2): Changing times

Learning with 'e's

It is literally the ‘ architecture of participation ’ (O''Reilly, 2004; Barsky and Purdon, 2006) and demands active engagement as a natural facet of its character (Kamel Boulos and Wheeler, 2007). The problem with this is that students may not always be as accurate or fastidious in their content generation as they could be, and may need guidance on the pathway they choose to take.

Let Learners Sleep on It

Integrated Learnings

For example, researchers from the University of Haifa published a study in Nature Neuroscience in 2007 in which study participants who took a 90-minute nap after learning a task improved their ability to perform the task again later that day. Another example, published in Nature in 2004, suggests that sleep can enhance performance in creative problem solving. in Germany trained subjects how to solve a math problem using a tedious method.

My two posts about Facebook and other social networking sites as LMS (Learning Management Systems) were also popular. The best discussions were posts where I took a stand on something a bit controversial: the need for technology skills and Facebook/social networking as LMS.
